Things to do for May 15, 2014
Gin Snow Cones, Suits and a Rooftop
The weekend is coming from inside the house.
Caffè Nero. It’s an Italian-style coffee chain. And now it’s in America for the first time ever. Which is good, because you needed a new spot to sip espresso by a fireplace and contemplate a mantelpiece from 19th-century France. You have very specific needs.
The Part with Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream
Don’t be alarmed if you see people inside a shipping container in Harvard Square. They aren’t cargo ship stowaways. They’re just making you liquid nitrogen ice cream. Because this is Churn2, and it’s finally back for its second season. Though that still doesn’t explain why it’s a shipping container.
Some of Louis Boston’s friends are in town for the weekend. Kiton. Brioni. Belvest. Those guys. And they’ll be measuring you for suits that are cut and sewn entirely by hand. Oh, and Harry’s of London is there to make you shoes on-site. Little Friday afternoon cobbling never killed anyone.
Boy, Have We Got a Rooftop for You
Q: Hey, Revere, we hear your rooftop opens for the season on Saturday. What’s new?
A: Oh, you know. Champagne sangria Jell-O shots. Hanging egg chairs. A new season pass for using my pool all summer.
Q: Is that fantastic?
Oh, hey, look. It’s another thing reopening for summer. Super. This time it’s Moksa’s patio, and there’s an Asian barbecue party with an outdoor dumpling station, chicken yakitori on the grill, gin snow cones and all-you-can-eat sushi for $15. Because at that point, why not.
